K&L Notes

89-91 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Stephane Derenoncourt’s “baby”, the Domaine de l’A has a very pure, engaging bouquet with subtle floral notes that develop in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins. The creamy oak is well integrated and politely remains in the background, lending the dark plum and cassis fruit the lift it needs. Class winemaking here in a challenging vintage." (05/2013)

    From one of the "in" Bordeaux regions for value wines. This property is the home of Stephane Derencourt. This Merlot wine displays black fruit aromas and flavors. Some good grip on the back and excellent acid balance. Still a bit young but decanting will soften up for your steak dinner. The nose opens after 30 minutes decanting and the palate impression is rich and round with some modern oak nuances. Great for the cellar too.
    Drink from 2016 to 2028
